Barbara Mathes Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of Damien Hirst's Cathedral prints. Modeled after the artist's Superstition paintings of 2006, these radiating compositions of meticulously arranged butterfly wings create intricate patterns of dazzling shapes and colors that evoke the rose windows of Gothic cathedrals or the tesserae of Byzantine mosaics. By allying the fragility of the butterfly wings with the monumentality of religious art, these prints engage the big existential themes – nature, life, religion – that have defined Hirst's career. The exhibition will run from March 12-April 18, 2009.
